    I have seen this bowl for sale and admired it for literally about two years...and when it was suddenly very much discounted last week, I grabbed it! :) It just arrived today, and I am excited to share it. I have suspected for a long time that this bowl may have been made by Kralik, based on the 'punched' type of handles, as well as the overall bowl shape - it is about 10" across by 8" wide. I love the organic form of this piece. Anyway, I have always called it 'the cabbage leaf' in my head, and showed pictures of it to a friend a few days ago. I have to thank them, since they said it reminded them very much of Kralik's 'Gloria' decor, but without the applied glass petals. I then looked at quite a few Kralik 'Gloria' examples, and do agree that they have a lot of similarities. Does anyone else think it could be a 'Gloria' variant?

      Most probably Kralik, shape number 3688 according to a product sheet from around 1905. It may have had a mount originally.
    12. welzebub, 5 years ago
      Hi Volkmar, I am curious as to the source of the production sheet you are referencing? Thanks.
    13. Michelleb007 Michelleb007, 5 years ago
      Volkmar, thank you very much! I really appreciate your input. I'd love to see a picture of the product sheet - I didn't know any existed!
    14. Wow22, 5 years ago
      Product sheet? Glasfreund, please share.
      Outstanding piece.

      Wow22, are you in the Facebook Art Glass Collectors group? Anyone can join; Volkmar posted the page there for everyone to see. If you aren't on FB, I can email you a copy of the image.
